I am using it under Mares isotherm semi-dry when bottom temperature is belo 55F. It is easy to put on or off and greatly increases insulation.

Check sizing carefully

I read the prior reviews and ordered a size larger than the size chart recommended. However, that size is still just a little too small. I'm 5'10" and 195 lbs and I ordered an XL, which I'll be returning. Another issue I would comment on is that neck rotation is severely reduced in comparison to just a long-necked hood.

Add at least one size

from Oklahoma City, OK, US

Great vest but sizing is small. Bought a large before my dive and it was a little snug, but ok...Thanksgiving hit and I add about 5 lbs and it became too snug. If your a little clostrofobic be careful you may need your dive buddy to help you take it off after a dive. I now have a XL and all is well!

Great, but not doofus-proof...

My job at a local aquarium requires me to don and doff a wetsuit 3-4 times a day. During colder months, I was wearing myself out struggling in and out of my old ScubaPro hooded vest. The XS Scuba vest with its side-zip is the perfect solution. Still, when I tried it out, I was disappointed by all the cold water exchange I was experiencing, until I discovered that I had forgotten to zip up my outer 5-mil fullsuit. Duh! Now that I've corrected my mistake, I find that I'm cozy warm on every dive. The side zip and Glide-Skin Interior make it much easier to get on and off, and the short waist means I don't have to worry about tucking it in when I pull up my fullsuit. The offset vent holes in the top of the hood keep water out, but allow air to escape. That means I can put my mask on first then pull the hood up, which will help me keep my mask on when I dive in heavy currents. Clearing my mask by exhaling through my nose doesn't inflate the hood. The vent seams do cause some unfortunate lumps, which makes the hood kind of dorky-looking, but we're not in this for fashion, right? Taped and sewn seams all around and overall solid construction give me confidence that my new hooded vest will last for many years of regular use. Note that I found I had to go a size up from my normal medium to get the proper fit, so I'm glad I was able to visit LP's NYC showroom to try this vest on first.

keeps me warm

I bought this piece too layer under a 4/3 wetsuit for surfing in Chilly NH. So far have had it out in 19 degree air/45 degree water and the combo has kept me warm. I ordered a size larger as suggested, and it fits perfectly. Never used a hood before, and the face seal on this one allows a flush during unintentional trips into the water, but maybe all hoods are the same that way?

There is a great amount of resistance to turning your head from side-to-side, to the point where I cannot get full rotation and I wonder if it will cause cramps when I'm scanning around me during a dive. I love the side zipper. It makes it SO much easier to get on and off as compared to a regular hooded vest. It is also very comfortable around the face and throat.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  hi, the review of this vest says to order one size up. I'm 5'10, 155 and have 38.5 inch chest, which puts me at a medium based on the size chart. Should I order a large instead?
JEFFREY K  I would try the medium first based on your height and weight. To keep warm, which of course is the whole point of a vest you need it tight. I suggest you put the vest on first then your wet suit.
DAVID M  Medium large or large
